Switch computer automaticly

Hi, can anybody tell me if it is possible to schedule your computer to switch on automatically? Once i heard that you can do this from the bios, but i dont know.

Thankx and regards

Christian

You need to go into your BIOS settings to see if it will do what you want..

Even if your BIOS does not have that option, it probably has a 'on after power fail' option. This option, when enabled, will turn the computer on after a power failure.

So, just set a scheduled time to shut down, and use a wall timer to re-apply power at the time you want it to come back on.

I have never seen a BIOS that allows you to schedule a power on...that is not to say that it does not exist. As for using a wall timer to schedule a power on...if you shut down your computer using the shutdown command the power on after power failure feature of the BIOS will most likely not power the machine back on when the timer kicks in.

Is there a specific reason why you want the power to be powered on at a specific time?

The power on after power failure will turn the machine back on regardless of what method was used to turn it off with, be it shut down, hibernate, etc. It merely reapplies power, it doesn't know or care how it was shut down (if at all).

I know if it's a Dell, there is a power on feature. You will find it in the bios.
